It is fortunate to see that ever more organizations in Vietnam are striving to reduce the negative impact the production of their goods or service has on the environment in which we all live in.
Unfortunately, many of the same organizations associate environmental protection with higher costs. A burden they cannot take, given ever-higher market pressure.
Two instances make "going green" for organizations compulsive in 2020 and thereafter: The first is through outside conditions: Organizations, who have not yet put their attention on the environmental impact of their output, are starting to feel increasing pressure from customers, investors, money-lenders, governments, news reports, or the general public. Not to mention the growing threat of carbon taxation which more and more countries are beginning to adopt following international agreements to limit climate change. A significant cost factor.
The other way is a more forward-oriented one: When a company learns that profitability and ecologic mindfulness are not mutually exclusive aspects, but complement each other. In many ways, "going green" means higher, not lower profits, which triggers a new level of competitiveness.
The marketing-power of being at the forefront of clean production and environmentally friendly service is still widely underestimated. Consumers increasingly factor a positive image towards the protection of nature and resources into their purchase decisions.
The "National Energy Efficiency Program 2030" by the Ministry of Industry and Trade requires from large corporations a year-on-year energy consumption reduction of 1%. Yet, a significant number of factories and other organizations in the country, who have understood this powerful marketing-effect, impose far more ambitious targets of 5% or above on themselves - voluntarily!
The following questions are rapidly becoming critical for anyone involved in the economic process:
NATPOWER International AG, a Swiss tech- and finance-consortium, assembled out of ambitiously idealistic, independent investors and energy-experts, has created ARES (the Advanced Renewable Energy System).
ARES is now available in Vietnam through NATPOWER Vietnam Investment JSC which has earmarked funds of US$ 300 Million to help factories and other organizations with significant environmental impact to green energy without the need for specific knowledge or capital.ARES applies to any factories, hospitals, schools, universities, commercial- or residential-complexes with significant power consumption.
It is also crucial to mention at this point that the investors and energy-experts behind ARES do not seek fast or high profits. NATPOWER intends to play a small role in making the earth a cleaner, greener place for our children and future generations to live their lives in health and nature's abundance. Each project is adjusted to allow for modest economic profitability, intended to sustain and grow the concept while at the same time, adding substantial value to the user.
Following the simple application at the bottom of this page, NATPOWER's specialists will generate a power consumption profile based on the organization's historical data – at no cost – leading to a professional feasibility evaluation.
There are two critical limitations to the program:
When a company or institution is accepted into the ARES program, NATPOWER finances, installs, and operates a green energy source right at the site, leading to an environmentally friendly power supply at a guaranteed lower cost.
